How are you? Thank you so much for visiting our fundraiser! My name is Corrine and my future husband's name is Kenny! After years of finding 'Mr. Wrong' - at 38 years old, I have finally found my Mr. Right.
Kenny and I met on a blind date (nearly two years ago) right before my birthday. He was the perfect gentleman, coming to our date with flowers and a small, thoughtful, birthday gift for me. Since then, we have been inseparable. I love him dearly. He is the hardest worker I have ever known - a kindhearted man and a wonderful father. He has four children (yes four!) whom I adore and love as if they were my own. Kenny has been married before. I have never been married, nor do I have children. So, when, on a beautiful evening this past March, Kenny got down on one knee with a single red rose in hand asking me to be his wife - I was beyond happy. It still feels very surreal.
We are doing our best to budget as much as we can and still have a beautiful wedding. We are both trying to pay off debt so that we may begin our life together with as little financial stress as possible. Our wedding is less than five months away and we are finding it difficult to come up with all of the money needed, in that time period. It seems that something new keeps coming up and adding to our bills each month.
The reception venue - which is a quaint, intimate setting - is perfect for the simple people we are. We even chose to get married in February to save us some money (which, we would have probably done anyway - for a Valentine's weekend wedding is so romantic to us!) We have a portion of the venue paid off and all of the other vendors taken care of. We still need about six thousand dollars to finish paying the hall and for the one luxury we really want for that day - a wedding painter, who will paint a portrait of us and the people surrounding us, on our special day. This is something we both will treasure forever - it is a timeless piece.
We greatly appreciate your assistance in helping making our day as special as we have envisioned it. We will be sure to post pictures of our wedding night! This is a great site and we will be sure to give back!
